CFP: AISB 2009 Symposium on Affective Bodily Expression

AISB 2009 Symposium on Affective Bodily Expression
   6-7 April 2009, Edinburgh

The body is a highly expressive medium of communication, and one  that  is expressive on a number of different levels, for  example,  posture,  gesture and style of movement, including  shape, timing  and amplitude

It is involved in most of the major affective expressions   including:  emotions, social cues, relational cues and complex   mental states. The  complex interactions between these many   different forms of  expressions, as well as the non-expressive   elements of movement  (walking, performing tasks) makes it a   fascinating area of study.

The recent development of affective computing as an independent   field,  as well as the increasing reliability of motion capture  and  other  vision-based movement tracking methods, has created a  great  interest  in the computational study of expressive body  movement.  This symposium  aims at bringing together researchers  from different  disciplines with  the aim of sharing knowledge  on, discussing and  creating a better  understanding of the role  and power of body  movement as an affective  communication  modality and how such body  expression should be modeled  to  enable technology to exploits such  communication channel.

Paper Submission

For the symposium we invite two types of papers:

 *  Research Paper of up to 8 pages, that aim to present new    research and work in progress.

 *  Position papers of 2-4 pages that aim to present a topic  for   discussion in the conference. The oral presentation will  be  shorter  than research papers to allow time for a longer  discussion.

All submissions will be reviewed by an international programme    committee.
Papers should be formatted in the ECAI format as described on  the  AISB  download page ( aisb09/  downloads.php). Please email papers for submission to  both co- chairs  by the 19th December '08.
